Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3 - The boy from Parts (1997) and More Parts (2001, both Dial) returns. Here, he is preparing to go to school. Each page features a phrase that includes an idiom, along with a humorous illustration of the child literally living up to that particular expression. For example, for "I lost my head," the headless youngster wanders around with arms outstretched looking for his missing body part, which is partially concealed behind a chair. Along the bottom of the page, his toys illustrate additional figures of speech ("It makes my head spin," "I laughed my head off," "My head is in the clouds"). Created with colored pencils and watercolor washes, the bright, manic artwork features pop-eyed characters drawn with a loose, squiggly line. The rhyming, which has always been a weak point in the books, is kept to a minimum while the chaos is kept at the previous high level. Arnold's art manages to keep the gross-out factor reasonable while producing plenty of laughs. Even libraries without the first two titles will find this a fun choice for sharing aloud and for tempting independent readers. - Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI

The original Parts was great and my youngster loved reading it over and over. Very funny story.

This third book in the series appears it has gotten to the stage where they are trying to "milk dollars out of the franchise". The style change is a unpleasant surprise and now it is simple one line idiom's which the child audience does not find entertaining. This is not a book I can read to my 4 year old at bedtime since there is only one sentence per page. While some people may find the idiom's interesting, because it is a different style I think they should not have been misleading and included it in the "Parts Franchise" that kids have come to expect as a good read for bedtime.

I feel like I wasted my $12 on this one...I wish I had looked at it at the bookstore instead of relying on the Parts franchise name and buying it sight unseen on Amazon.

My boys (7 and 3) both love the 'Parts' and 'More Parts' books by Tedd Arnold, so we were very excited to find out that 'Even More Parts' had been published. Unfortunately, we were all a little disappointed in the third book. It is basically a collection of idioms with funny illustrations - "I laughed my head off.", "My eyes are glued to the television.", "Keep your nose out of other people's business.". Tedd Arnold's idea of illustrating idioms as a child would understand them is very funny, but 'Parts' and 'More Parts' were much more enjoyable.

My 4 1/2 year old son and I loved the first two books in this series. I found the language in this book offensive and did not continue reading after the first 4 or 5 pages. If you prefer not to use the words stupid, crazy, and idiot in your household then this is not the book for you.

I have never heard my kid laugh so much at a book as I have with this series. This gets a 4.5/5 stars from me. The format is slightly different, and it's less dialogue than the previous two Parts books. There is one bigger picture which contains a picture depicting the literal interpretation of a common idiom about a body part, then smaller pictures with more common idioms about that body part. I highly recommend getting this and the other two Parts books. It will not be a waste of your time, and may even help your child learn to love reading.

Tedd Arnold's books were discovered by my granddaughter who hates to read. They changed her life! She got such a kick out of the comical pictures and funny story line that she read them over and over. I had to buy them for my own home. It made me smile when she saw them on the shelf...."You got the books, Nana!!!!" Priceless!

My seven year old son got this at the school library & loved it so much we had to get our own copies of the whole series. It's kid / potty / gross humor so if that offends you this book is not for you. I think it's so cleaver, cute & hilarious & so does my 2.5 yr old.

We first found these books at the library. My 9-year-old grandson is mildly to moderately autistic, and any verbal communications that are not concrete and obvious are difficult, if not impossible, for him to understand. These books, however, have been a godsend which have greatly increased his knowledge and understanding of the many idioms we use every day without thinking about their actual meanings. The first book, "Parts," is more of a simple story introducing just a few idioms. The second book, "More Parts," adds a few more. The third book (this one), however, is more comprehensive and a little less light in its outlook - I think to target older children. Not only does it introduce a major idiom or two per page, but it also shows related idioms on the bottom of most pages, covering many more idioms than the other two books do. During my grandson's latest IEP meeting, the school psychologist was amazed at the many figures of speech that my grandson had understood when he had tested him, as it is very unusual for autistic children to test well in this area. I noted that we had been reading the "Parts" books to my grandson at home - at that, his speech teacher said that she often used them to help her students expand their knowledge of idioms as well.
These are great books to help children to understand sayings that we often take for granted. Be aware, however, if you have a young child, that we use sayings that could be translated in a rather gruesome way. For example, think about the saying, "I'm laughing my head off!" Does your head really fall off? What if it did? What if your child thought that was what was really meant? Be prepared to help your child understand what is really meant by sayings that you use but have never really thought about before. "Keep an open mind," don't "let your mind wander," and, whatever you do, make sure you never "Lose your marbles" - and you will thoroughly enjoy this trip down idiom lane. :-D

I was very disappointed in this book. My granddaughter loves Parts and I thought this book and More Parts would be a wonderful addition. Boy was I wrong. There is no story to either one, and it is not interesting to any child I have shown it to. I am very sorry I purchased either one.
